MARIN – An ANR project

MARIN stands for Magnon Reservoir computINg. It is a 42 months researcher project funded by the French ANR. MARIN aims at showing that spin waves can be used in the field of “wave-computing” where oscillatory signals are proposed to perform analog non-Boolean operations such as reservoir computing (see Figure). The MARIN project will investigate experimentally […]

Review – Spin insulatronics

Arne Brataasa, Bart van Wees, Olivier Klein, Grégoire de Loubens, Michel Viret, Physics Reports 885, 1-27 (2020) Spin insulatronics covers efforts to generate, detect, control, and utilize high-fidelity pure spin currents and excitations inside magnetic insulators. Here, the authors review recent developments to realize electric and thermal generation, manipulation, detection, and control of pure spin […]

A consortium led by physicists at JGU Mainz, in collaboration with CNRS/Thales Palaiseau, SPINTEC and LNCMI Grenoble, and NTNU Trondheim, demonstrated that transporting spin-information at room temperature and over long distances is within reach. They established and took advantage of two remarkable features of the insulating hematite antiferromagnet. Firstly, it can carry spin-information via current-induced […]

SpinSpike – An ANR project

SpinSpike stands for Spintronic Spiking Neurons. It is a 42-month-long ANR project (2021/2024). Spintronics has recently shown its promise for neuromorphic computing, but is lacking an essential ingredient of biological neural networks: spiking neurons. In this context, the objective of SpinSpike project is to explore novel approaches of spiking neurons using magnetic tunnel junctions. Building […]

k-net – An H2020 project

A key component of artificial intelligence is neuromorphic computing, which represents the endeavor to replicate the human brain to perform efficiently very complex tasks such as pattern recognition. Until now, almost all practical implementations of deep neural-networks are emulated using nanostructured electronic components that try to replicate the brain’s volume architecture on a surface. However, […]

In the frame of the French national ANR project SpinSpike, Spintec laboratory is opening a postdoctoral researcher position. The candidate will work in collaboration with UMPhy CNRS-Thales and Thales TRT. The objective is the realization of proof-of-concept magnetic tunnel junction based artificial spiking neurons able to generate spikes and propagate them between coupled artificial neurons. […]

Recent progress in nanotechnology has led to the development of spin-torque nano-oscillators (STNO), whose time constants, due to their nano-scale size, are naturally of the order of 1-100 nanoseconds. At SPINTEC we demonstrated experimentally for the first time that the use of such STNOs in swept-tuned microwave spectrum analyzers leads to a substantial reduction of […]

You find here the list of proposals for Master-2 internships to take place at Spintec during Spring 2021. In most cases, these internships are intended to be suitable for a longer-term PhD work. Interested Master-1 students are also encouraged to apply, as well as students not phased for a Spring internship. You may download the […]

The European consortium SpintronicFactory, largely supported by the French laboratories Spintec (Grenoble) and the CNRS-Thales Joint Lab (Palaiseau), publishes in the journal Nature Electronics an ambitious roadmap for spintronics. This discipline on the borderline between magnetism and microelectronics is indeed reaching maturity, offering broad prospects for innovation. B. Dieny, I. L. Prejbeanu, K. Garello, P. […]
